Yes you do. Everyone has access to Linux

Go here and download Virtual Box. Virtual Box will allow you to run an operating system inside of Windows without affecting the parent operating system.

Once you have downloaded Virtual Box, you will need a Linux distribution. For a beginner I would recommend Ubuntu, but any flavor of Linux will work.

Here's a few links to download Linux

I've ordered them from lowest to highest learning curve. You should be able to plug the Ubuntu ISO into VBox and run it, while ArchLinux will require more work (there's no "installer" per se, and you'll need to set everything up manually).

VirtualBox Documentation can be found here. You can probably just skip to Creating your first virtual machine
